Materials Coordinator- OEM Sales (Former Employee) –  Sand Springs, OKMarch 3, 2017
This is a good company with lots of opportunities. But like any manufacturing company, there are highs and lows- with this trend, layoffs come and go, so job security is an issue.

Endwelder Operator (Former Employee) –  Sand Springs, OKJanuary 3, 2017
A typical day is 12 hour shifts with a 3 day week considered full time with opportunities for overtime. There is a myriad of skills you can learn at Webco, but with hit and miss with management and supervisors it depends on who you're under with how much you can grow. Overall there is a good team mentality. There is some job stability but since Webco is tied to the pipeline layoffs have happened in the past, some minor some major.
Pros
Paid lunches, decent benifits, selective overtime.
Cons
Possibility for layoffs, dirty environment

Tank operator (Former Employee) –  Sand Springs, OKDecember 3, 2016
Webco does a fantastic job of keeping a good structure. There is no question about your responsibilities, job description, what is expected of you etc. They provide good pay and good benefits to their employees, try to have a very professional yet family oriented environment as a company, they are mostly run on internal advancement so there is always opportunity within the company. They have great shifts to promote work/life balance but also allow OT. The hardest part of the job is not getting caught up in working too much overtime.
Pros
Excellent pay, good benefits, good schedules, very safety conscious
Cons
short breaks for 12 hr shift

Learned a lot of skills while employed with Webco. I Learned all of the jobs webco had to offer in the cold drawing process. Started out as a overhead crane operator and worked my way up to becoming a drawbench operator.

Maintenance Technician / Manager (Former Employee) –  Sand Springs, OKSeptember 5, 2016
I worked for this company for 13 years and they offered me plenty of opportunity. I had to leave because I could no longer walk for 12 hours a day. It is a hot and fast paced environment and while the pay at one time was very good, it is inching closer to minimum wage rather than staying a percentage above it. They try to compensate with overtime and typically there is plenty of that. Its a great place to get your feet wet if you wish to learn a maintenance trade or just make a steady living if you are willing to put in the time.
Pros
Plenty of opporitunity, health care, vision, etc.
Cons
Hot, long days in the summer.

Its was my first welding job that I joined as deburr but due to my learning skill that quickly let me learn how to mig in few days and rose my position into full time welder as I learn many tips and advices from experienced welders. The company remembered everyone birthday with card and gift, randomly pick people to eat with the owner to better interact to improve the company.

Not a bad place to work
Tank Operator (Current Employee) –  Sand Springs, OKFebruary 20, 2016
Webco has been around for 46 years. The atmosphere is geared for those whom wish to work overtime. The workday is 12hrs for most employees. Safety is very important at Webco. When possible they promote from within. The benefits are above average. The pay rate is also geared toward those whom like to work overtime.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Overtime

Great company for someone just starting out
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Mannford, OKNovember 5, 2015
This is a good company if you are just starting your career. There is little opportunity to move upwards and the pay is very low in comparison to competitors. I also don't feel like they put enough emphasis on professional development or training.
Pros
Bosses are generally easy to work with and good opportunity to learn if you have the right boss.
Cons
limited vacation time, little or none 401k match, low pay, minimal professional development, and lack of opportunity to move up

This is a steel tube manufacture that has some really big customers in the Automotive industry. The tolerances are tight and the work load is steady except in the winter where it slows down.

Challenging place to work but worth it.
Maintenance (Current Employee) –  OklahomaApril 15, 2015
Often you hear about places that will give you as much as your are willing to put in. This company is one such place. Here are a few points about the company.

First thing you have to understand is every plant is ran differently. This shows if you drive a fork truck and must re-certify per plant. So your experience will be different per plant.

Second is you'll be on your feet for 12 hours a day unless you have a job in the office or are a yard worker who gets to sit down. This is a no exception rule as chairs are not located anywhere on the production floor.

Third you'll move up as much as you work towards it. This company doesn't want a mindless bee worker. They want you to be educated and will pay for you to go to school. They do high level training and it shows. If you need to change your schedule due to school they are very accommodating

Fourth they are one of the few companies that you'll find that put their employees first over profits. However don't be surprised with a lay off. While they will try to keep you employed as much as they can if you work in a non skilled area and haven't put time or effort into the company you won't last.

Fifth the main plants operate 24hrs a day. Don't be surprised if they move you to nights after working a few months. At least they didn't lay you off so they like you enough to keep you,

Sixth they operate an old school mentality when it comes to time off. You'll read that people don't get a lot of time off. This is true as you won't get paid time off until a year then you'll get a weeks worth of vacation to act also as
  more... sick time. You'll then get an option to buy a weeks worth that will work out like "Your weekly pay"/52 taken out of your check. You'll get 10 points to use for non paid time off and being late. Late for this company is 6:00:01. Ideally they want you clocked in 15 minutes before your shift. FYI you won't get paid for doing so unless you actually work.

Seventh don't expect your boss to know more than you. Your boss is put in the position he is because he can manage people. You'll end up knowing more about the machine than your boss and you should be okay with this. As Webco is at the forefront of automation the machines maybe from the sixties but the mechanics will be new and improved. So much so that you'll have to keep on your toes when the engineers come to make the machines work faster, better, stronger.

So remember these points: Your experience will vary per plant, you will be on your feet for 12 hours a day so get comfy insoles, you'll get as much as you put in, they will work with you until the end if they lay you off, they run 24hrs a day so be prepared to work nights if needed, they are old school with old school benefits, Don't expect the guys above you to know more than you just remember they are there to take the blame if something goes wrong.

Pros
Old school company values, Tuition reimbursement, Promotions, Personal HR depending on plant, Automation, Big company small company values

Fast paced work environment, no focus on family
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJanuary 27, 2015
At their Tulsa Distribution warehouse, they have various tasks you may do, from cutting steel/copper nickel tubes, bending heat-exchanger tubing, creating fin tubes, or various quality checks of said tubes. It is is a fast paced work environment, but lacks a balance between work and home life. Work weeks are typically around 40 hours, but during high-production times can go up to 72 hours a week and can last months on end. Vacation is allowed based on company needs and if a long planned event may interfere with production, vacation can be denied up to the the day before. For a 12 hour work day, there are 2 breaks; one 15 min break and a 30 minute lunch. Upward mobility is difficult to obtain. They work on the buddy system and not who would be better fit for a particular job.
Pros
Decent pay and healthcare is reasonable.
Cons
No upward mobility for hard workers

Long work weeks with very little upward mobility.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKNovember 29, 2014
Depending on the facility, work weeks can be 60-72hrs in a fast paced, demanding environment. There is very little upward mobility and the opportunities to move into managerial positions are slim to none. The emphasis of work over family life is always present, as taking time off for holidays or family events(such as one's own wedding) is never guaranteed even when planned months in advance.
Pros
Decent pay and healthcare is reasonable.
Cons
Little room for advancement and no emphasis on family.
